Sonus faber Il Cremonese

True to the history of Italian violin making, and to its own innovative spirit,
Sonus faber pays homage to the great Antonio Stradivari. As with Stradivari’s instrument, Il Cremonese is the result of scientific researches and deep passion.

Stradivari's Violin

Inspired by the shape of Lilium, Il Cremonese is a tribute to the most famous creation of Antonio Stradivari. Its five non-parallel walls structure and the sides applied on the enclosure, requires a careful processing techniques, as for a musical instrument: from the wood bending and shaping, to the treatments of the precious Avional surfaces.

Theoretical Perfection

Theoretical perfection is what Sonus faber engineers have in mind in designing the “acoustic environment” of each single transducer. Each volume is insulated with different materials from open cell thermoplastic foam to fibrous materials, similar to the felt used in pianos. The most appropriate material or materials are selected for each specific application.

Rhomboidal Diamond Design

Il Cremonese's innovative 5-sided cabinet optimizes the structural solidity of the wooden cabinets with a unique diamond shape that is immediately recognizable thanks to clean lines and an elegant, minimal, and sharp design.

Stealth Reflex

The patented "para-aperiodic" interpretation of the tuned load. Besides allowing for a reduction in the dimensions of the cabinet size, it provides greater extension of the low frequency response and a dramatic containment of every form of distortion; also eliminating spurious "port" noises typical of traditional reflex systems. Thus, also, substantially contributing to the correct sound reproduction.


SW 22 XT-08 is a powerful 220mm infrawoofer. To obtain maximum rigidity, the structure of the cone is made of a lightweight "sandwich" cone structure of syntactic foam and cellulose pulp. This is also implemented in an independent tuned enclosure, acoustically "amorphous Stealth Reflex" chamber.

Silent Spikes

Il Cremonese is mechanically decoupled from the floor through a new and innovative version of the patented system Zero Vibration Transmission. The new implementation presents coaxial spikes metal / elastomer / metal that, compared to the previous version implemented on alternate surfaces, guarantees a further simplification in the construction and aesthetic lightness.
